An e-book on building network applications using the Java, Go, Python, Javascript, Rust and Julia programming languages. This looks at how to do basic network programming tasks in each of these languages. The intention is that programmers will be able to compare the languages and choose the most appropriate for their tasks.

In writing this, I discovered the site Rosetta Code which is doing something similar, but on a much larger scale: "The idea is to present solutions to the same task in as many different languages as possible, to demonstrate how languages are similar and different, and to aid a person with a grounding in one approach to a problem in learning another." Cool!
